About our client

Challenges & benefits

Challenges & opportunities

  • D&D needed a purchasing and production system for the new Chinese production site in 2011.
  • Both Dutch and Chinese colleagues had to be able to work with the system in their own language
  • D&D wanted to be able to handle everything with standard functionality and as little customization as possible
  • The software had to be able to produce 100% accurate bills of materials for each order without any problems


  • Certainty about the continuity of the package because SAP is a professional, stable party
  • SAP can offer global support, which is very convenient with a branch in China
  • The software is prepared for Chinese financial legislation as standard
  • SAP Business One can also be managed remotely without in-house IT experts.
  • Amista is a pleasant party that is easy to reach and responds quickly.

SAP Business One gives me peace of mind. I feel like I have a grip on everything happening in China from 9,000 kilometers away. For a remote owner, that’s very nice.

Jan van der Donk, Owner


SAP Business One provides a comprehensive solution for purchasing and production processes, allowing the company to operate seamlessly. With multilingual support in Dutch, English and Chinese, all colleagues can communicate and work easily.

In addition, SAP Business One is configured so that management in the Netherlands can follow along. From Bergeijk, the Dutch management team is fully in control of everything that happens in China. An in-house accountant watches along and checks the books from the Netherlands. This provides the ability to remotely monitor and manage important data such as orders, schedules, margins and price deviations.
